NEW DELHI: Upping the ante against the government, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday alleged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi of taking money from the Sahara group as the chief minister of Gujarat during 2013-14.

“According to Sahara group diary entries, PM Modi was paid nine times in the period of six months,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Rahul said that these records are with I-T department for last 2 and half years yet no action has been taken.

“As per record with the I-T department , Rs. 2.5 crore was given to Modi on 30 October 2013; Rs. 5 crore on 12 November 2013; Rs 2.5 crore on 27 November 2013; Rs 5 crore on 29 November 2013,” he said while addressing a rally in Mehsana town of North Gujarat.

“Entries shows that Rs 5 crore was given to Modi on 6 December 2013; Rs 5 crore on 19 Dec 201313; Rs 5 crore on 13 January 2014; Rs 5 crore on 28 Jan 2014; Rs 5 crore on 22 February 2014,” Rahul added.

Rahul had recently alleged that he had information about “personal corruption” involving Modi.

The Congress leader who yesterday likened the repeated changes in the rules to Modi’s changing of “clothes” said that PM Modi’s aim is to keep money of the poor in banks for at least 6-7 months so that he can waive off rich people’s loans.

“When a farmer or middle class people take loans from banks and are unable to pay they are put behind bars but when the same is done by rich, they are not called ‘chor’ but are called defaulters,” the Congress leader said.
